Prediction and odds for the game: Inter (14/5) vs Bayern Munich (4/5)
We are backing the Bayern Munich win
When: Wednesday 7 September 2022, Kick-off 20:00
Where: The Giuseppe Meazza
On Wednesday night, Inter host Bayern Munich at the Giuseppe Meazza, as both teams look to kick off Group C of the Champions League with a victory.
Simone Inzaghi’s team has made an underwhelming start to the new campaign. The Nerazzurri kicked off the Serie A campaign with two straight wins over Leece and Spezia. However, since then, they have suffered defeats against Lazio and arch-rivals Milan in the Italian top-flight.
Inzaghi faces a big test of his coaching acumen in the Champions League, as the Nerazzurri are not just paired with Bayern but also in-form Catalan giants Barcelona.
The men from Milan made it to the last 16 of the Champions League last season, only to exit the competition at the hands of eventual finalists Liverpool.
Inter has a poor recent home record in the Champions League, as the Nerazzurri has won just two of their previous eight matches in European football’s elite competition.
Inter are without Dalbert and Gabriel Brazao. However, their main absentee could be Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku, who has not featured in Inter’s last two matches. Edin Dzeko and Joaquin Correa are vying for a starting spot if Lukaku fails to make the game.
The German giants are seven games unbeaten this season in the Champions League. However, a 1-1 draw at Union Berlin last time out means Bayern has drawn two of their previous three games in all competitions.
The Bavarians have remained relatively prolific of late, scoring at least two goals in five of their last seven matches in all competitions.
Bayern Munich tends to be strong in the Champions League. However, the German champions head into this game on the back of just one win in their previous four outings in the competition.
Last season Bayern exited the competition at the quarter-final stage, suffering a 2-1 aggregate defeat by Spanish team Villarreal. The first leg 1-0 loss in Spain was Bayern’s only defeat in their last 11 matches in the Champions League.
The loss also ended a 25-game unbeaten run on their travels for Bayern in European football’s elite competition.
The visitors will be without defender Bouna Sarr through injury. Lucas Hernandez will likely return to the starting line-up after a weekend rest.
Inter have made a poor start to their title challenge in Serie A. Although Bayern are on a good unbeaten run, the German giants have certainly not been at their best at the start of the new campaign. However, we are backing the visitors to claim a victory. The other bet we are backing is over 2.5 goals scored. Both teams are potent in attack and should trouble their opponent’s backline.
Our Tips: We are backing a Bayern Munich win at odds of 4/5 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 1/2. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
